The Bedwetter Information

Atlantic Theater Company presents the Off-Broadway world premiere of The Bedwetter, featuring a book by two-time Emmy Award-winning comedian Sarah Silverman and Drama Desk Award winner Joshua Harmon, and a score by Silverman and the late Adam Schlesinger. Check back for information on The Bedwetter tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

In The Bedwetter musical, based on Silverman's same-named memoir, her 10-year-old self is already a budding comedian (and yes, her trademark raunchy humor was no less so back then). It's the best way to deal with having a depressed mother, aging grandma, and unsupportive sister. But that's not the worst of young Sarah's problems — she has a big secret (hint: it's in the title), and when it leaks, her life really turns upside down.

The musical was still unfinished in 2020, when The Bedwetter was set to premiere and when Schlesinger ultimately passed away due to Covid-19 complications. The Band's Visit Tony Award winner David Yazbek came on as creative consultant to help finish the show for its world premiere in 2022.

Premiering a new musical was the latest in a long string of Silverman's career accomplishments. Besides releasing The Bedwetter book in 2010, she's also earned an Emmy nomination for The Sarah Silverman Program, aired numerous solo comedy specials, and played dozens of onscreen roles in projects like Rent, School of Rock, and Wreck-It Ralph (voiceover).

Rounding out the creative team are Schlesinger, known for Crazy-Ex Girlfriend; Harmon, whose critically acclaimed play Prayer for the French Republic hits Broadway in 2023; and director Anne Kauffman, who staged the Tony-nominated 2023 Broadway revival of The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window.

Our review

The Bedwetter

Sarah Silverman's pungently irreverent and profane brand of comedy makes the leap into musical theatre with her funny but uneven new show, The Bedwetter.If a fifth grader belting about pee and impersonating Oscar winner Sally Field cutting the cheese makes you LOL, then you may really, really like this Atlantic Theater Company production. There's more bathroom humor on tap — considering the title, of course there is. Drawn from Silverman's 2010 memoir, the taboo-toppling star is all over the...
